Hi Debra,
Thanks so much for your reply. I was 99.9 % sure that they were Mary Ann's parents. I have information on Susan Ward and would be happy to share with you, but some of it is very personal and I cannot post it to "Leave A Message". If you care to send me your email address (privately to my email address: I would be glad to share with you. Thanks so much. Larry Draughon

Hi Debra,
I see that on Find A Grave, you said Mary A. Sprink was your great grandmother. I am lead to believe that she was a daughter of Susan Ward and Daniel Travis Alexander who lived in Texas for a while. Do you know that to be true? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Larry Draughon. #47658214.

RE: any way to find mothers maiden name?
I think you would have to do some real detective work on the ground to find out anything, and odds are not good with the date of death being so far back. You could go to the courthouse in the county and examine deeds and wills and any other records they might have going back that far. Sometimes they box up other really old records and put them away, so you have to tell the clerks what you are looking for and hope they have been there long enough to be knowledgeable.

There may be some old funeral home records of cemetery plots and you could call and ask each funeral home if they have anything or know where it is located.

The library is also an excellent place and they may have an ancestry department and somebody who is knowledgeable.

Of course, you can search online and in or the like for information, but I expect you have done that.

That's all I can think of, and all I have ever done.

Best Regards - Jack Dodson

I'm still adding graves from Oakridge Cemetery in Clarksdale, MS from time to time, but haven't done anything lately.

RE: Carol langhammer
Hi Carol. What it means to transfer a memorial is you would have control over what is on the memorial page, content, order of photos and links. I would just remain was the original creator and give up all editorial rights to you. Since she is not related to me and she is your sister, I would be more than happy to give it to you. I create the memorials to honor my family and for non-relatives so their family will know where they are buried. Please let me know and I will give you the memorial page. Jon

RE: any way to find mothers maiden name?
I have some good news for you.

I looked in the funeral records in the local library today and Agnes Hick's mother's name is listed as Mary Ann Alexander. It was apparently provided by a Mr. George Hicks.

RE: You knew a daughter of Agnes, wow!
I looked again but couldn't find any leads regarding the info you are seeking. You might find an obituary or a funeral record if you go where she was buried.

I knew the lady who Ran Agnes Hicks floral for many years. It was a nice little shop and her name was a household word.
